Cat extermination. Panhandling elimination. Stop overregulation.

Those were just some of the ideas that Patch readers shared as possible entries in the annual "There Oughta Be a Law" contest. 

Sponsored by California Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, the contest asks constituents to submit their ideas for what they think is a necessary new law. Hill sponsors the winning entry as a new law in the state Senate in Sacramento.

That home insurance goes by the house (address), and not the name of the person who owns it ,which is considered 'confidentiaL INFO'. When one goes to buy a home, they should be able to see any insurance claims made on the physical address. Aside form that - I concur with: Enforce old laws, or get rid of them - go back to basics - bring back public stockades, less lawyers - harsher penalties for those actually 'witnessed' in a crime. (In the Middle East, how many times can a person be caught stealing? - Twice, a person only has 2 hands)

All projects should be pre-certified as being legal under California and county law. This would eliminate massive legal costs and community divisions. Why start a project that breaks CA law?
